How to Get Rid of Cooking Odors and Smells

Remove Cooking Odor Smells and Odors with Odorox/Pyure Hydroxyls

There are few things more frustrating than being in a home, whether it is yours or a friend’s, and being unable to concentrate or enjoy yourself because of a bad smell in the space. When there is a bad odor in the house, especially if it is coming from prior cooking, it is impossible to relax and enjoy yourself without thinking about how to eliminate kitchen odors.

One problem that goes hand-in-hand with cooking is trying to get rid of the smell of cooking when you are done with your meal. While any kind of cooking or baking will produce odors that you will want to remove from your home, there are some culprits that everyone immediately recognizes that can be very unpleasant. If you have ever fried onions, baked fish, or cooked a curry with a lot of spices, then you have already experienced the problems that can occur due to kitchen odors, leaving you wondering how to eliminate cooking odors.

Fish Smell in the Kitchen

Fish is a main problem when cooking, and even though it is incredibly healthy and a great way to get protein into your diet, when you cook it, you will have a fishy smell that can be difficult to get rid of. The tissue of your fish actually has a chemical in it called trimethylamine oxide. While this is an odorless chemical, once it is exposed to oxygen it will begin to break down. As it breaks down, it is changed into derivatives of ammonia. This is one of the most noxious odors that you can have in your kitchen. Because of the smell that can be produced when you cook fish, you need to have a plan as to how to get rid of cooking odors before you even start cooking.

There are some ways to prepare your fish that will reduce the triethylamine oxide present in the fish. Soaking your fish in milk and then refrigerating it for a few hours before you actually cook it can reduce the levels of triethylamine oxide. Unfortunately, this will not completely remove any of the fishy odors that you are used to when you do prepare and cook your fish.

The Reason for Fish Smells

Killing a fish will immediately make fish enzymes and bacteria convert TMAO into TMA (trimethylamine). This is what gives fish its characteristic odor. By rinsing the TMA off of the surface of the fish with tap water or treating the fish with acidic ingredients, you can work to bind the TMA and cause it to be much less volatile, preventing the odors from reaching your nose.

Freshwater fish are milder than saltwater fish, and this is due in part to the fact that they do not accumulate TMAO because of the differences in their environment. However, some freshwater fish tend to taste or smell muddy due to the presence of compounds that are produced by algae the fish eats.

Hold the Onion (Smell)

Another smell that can be difficult to get rid of in your home is the smell of onions. Odors from onions can actually damage the fabrics in your home, including carpeting and clothing. Other foods that are closely related to onions and will have similar smells when cooking include chives, leeks, garlic, and shallots.


The amino acid alliin in these foods will convert into allicin when the food is chopped, which will create sulfide compounds rather quickly. It is these compounds that are so smelly and contribute to the odor we associate with onions.

Curry and other spices will also produce odors in your home and leave you wondering how to get rid of kitchen odors. While the spices themselves don’t cause the odors, it is the change in their chemical composition while they are heated that causes the smell. When cooked, these spices release a fat-soluble essential oil that creates the aroma.

Heat will make these vapors spread through your home and increase the way that they smell. While curry smells amazing, the odors can absorb into your clothing, wallpaper, and other surfaces. It’s difficult to remove the smell with just air fresheners, and Odorox/Pyure hydroxyl processors are the best way to remove these odors. This equipment will be able to remove these odors not only from your kitchen, but also throughout the rest of your home, as well.

Dear Brandon,
My youngest child has eczema. It had gotten so bad that he would itch himself bloody during the night. During a trip to the Gulf of Mexico he developed a skin staph infection because of the eczema. I brought him to the pediatrician, dermatologist, infectious disease specialist and a chiropractor. We tried acupuncture, numerous steroid creams, acidophilus, fish oil, Mona Vie and he was on an oral antibiotic because his skin was infected. He even asked me to tie his hands to his bed post so he could not scratch at night. I did not do this. I told him if there was a fire in the house he may not be able to get out.
One doctor implied that I was neglecting him because his skin was so awful. I was hurt and frustrated. We had been doctoring for three years! Then, I heard about the Odorox machine. I was willing to try anything! After about six weeks of the Odorox Oasis in my house, his eczema was under control! It has not cleared up completely but we only apply the steroid creams once a week now vs. TWICE DAILY!. We quit the acupuncture, Mona Via and the oral antibiotic! He no longer scratches at night. It has been a miracle for us. And if that is not enough, my older son has asthma. He has quit taking his daily Singulair and very seldom uses his albuterol inhaler. With all the past doctor appointments, prescriptions and my time away from work, the Odorox machine is saving me the money I spent on the machine!!

Thanks!

A few months back I purchased an Odorox Hydroxyl Generator. We originally purchased the Hydroxyl Generator as a last step for COVID-19 related cleaning procedure. We have since also used it to remedy odors as well and the unit has worked as advertised, all the while leaving a clean fresh smell in the room as the Odorox does its job.

We have ordered a few more Hydroxyl Generator with the intended plan to use the Hydroxyl Generators on a regular basis. I am happy that BioShine has this product. Our long time sales rep, Jeff Zahles took the time to further explain the benefits of a Hydroxyl Generator by explaining in great detail about how the Odorox Hydroxyl Generator works and even showed me short video clips online of an Odorox Hydroxyl Generator in action.
I would like to thank BioShine for introducing this product line to me as it has already worked wonders for us. I would not have found or known about this product otherwise. So I just want to say thank you.
